Esthetician Schools and Careers in Detroit
Detroit is by far the largest city in Michigan, with a population more than three times that of the next largest city and over six times that of the capital city, Lansing. As such, a lot is going on in Detroit.
Yet a 2016 study shows that Detroit has a disproportionately low number of skin care specialists and dermatologists compared to other large cities in the United States. That makes Detroit a smart place to launch your career as an esthetician.
Employment statistics back up this statement. Job growth for estheticians in Detroit is predicted to be much faster than the average of all other types of jobs—12% between 2016 and 2026. In addition, although Detroit ranks very well overall with regard to skin health, it is weak in one area—pollution and smoking. As such, medical estheticians are needed by people whose skin has been damaged by pollution or those undergoing cancer treatments.
The median salary for estheticians in the Detroit metro area is $23,980. Because the cost of living in Detroit is 7% lower than in Michigan as a whole and 17% lower than the U.S., you may be able to make your money go a lot farther than in other areas.
Michigan requires estheticians to complete 400 hours and six months of apprenticeship to obtain a license. All of the programs here help you meet those qualifications. Read more about programs that can launch your career in this exciting city!
